Does anyone know which makes a models this sale is for? I can't find any filters that are actually that low in price. Most seem to be the normal price.

Ignore this user, he obviously lives in the era where he thinks japanese cars are the bomb and everything else is crap.

What cars are bomb then? I think there has been a general decline in reliability across the entire industry. Which brands are more reliable than Honda and Toyota? Not any German or American cars that I know of.Messerschmitt wrote: ↑ Ignore this user, he obviously lives in the era where he thinks japanese cars are the bomb and everything else is crap.
Frams are one of the top rated filters, especially the ultra. Like mcwilly I bought a Ultra and I will leave it for at least 2 intervals (12k-15k kms each with my synthetic oil). I'll continue buying these and are only 10-12 from walmart

Even a Dodge is more reliable than a honda. If someone is putting a gun to my head and makes me pick between the 2, I'm going dodge, something I would've never considered 10 years ago

The Ultra is a little pricier than your standard filter but if you trust the egg heads over at bitog (bobistheoilguy.com) it is the most recommended and highest quality filter out there.
Fram gaurantees its filtration rating for up to 32,000kms of use.
On my cheap Toyota I throw a Fram Ultra on and just leave it on for about 4 oil change intervals (somewhere around 20 - 25k kms), so I am just draining and filling the oil. A fumoto valve that I can reach without lifting up my car makes the oil change a 10 min process, and most of that is just waiting for the oil to drain.
For the OP, the only frams I've seen at the $5 price point are the orange Extras. I would confidently use them for 5 - 6k kms, but not much more.

This is what I do, change filter every time I do the oil change. I have been using Fram Oil Filter from day 1, never had problem with it. Usually I purchase Fram oil filter and Castrol GTX from Walmart. Lately I have brought 4 jug of Castrol GTX from Canadian Tire when it was on sale.

Yes, I've never heard of re-using a filter before. Maybe it's okay, but that seems like an unnecessary risk to take for something that costs no more than $15-16 bucks. Filters are a lot cheaper than new engines.

Considering that relatively uninterrupted highway driving is the easiest type of driving to put on oil, that's so wasteful I don't even have the words to describe it.
